In the exciting first few seconds of the DW-WWVA game, the boys were already hitting the maple, scrapping for a loose ball. The Wolfpack held off a Knight rally in the fourth quarter to win by a whisker, 44-42, in Dayton Tuesday night. Here, Ryland Kilts (2) and Travis Lyford (22) wrangle for possession.

DAYTON–After jumping to an 18-12 first-quarter lead, the Dayton-Waitsburg Wolfpack boys held on through the second half to preserve a 44-42 win over the Walla Walla Valley Academy Knights here Tuesday. The win was the first conference victory for the Wolfpack, who are now 1-4 in league, 3-8 overall.

An earlier canceled game against Warden was rescheduled for Friday, Jan. 21 here, and Columbia-Burbank visits Saturday, Jan. 22. Senior Night will be Saturday, Jan. 29's meeting with River View.

Wolfpack's Dylan Bledsoe drained five three pointers, a few of them in the first quarter, helping DW to its 18-12 lead after the first eight minutes.

Both teams played evenly in the second and third quarters and the Wolfpack was able to keep the Knights at bay in the fourth for the two-point win.

WWVA's Travis Lyford led scoring with 21, followed by DW's Monte Pettichord with 20, and Bledsoe with 15-all from the three-point arc.

Pettichord and Keon Lindley led with eight rebounds apiece, and Pettichord made five assists.

At TriCities Prep on Saturday, Jan. 15, an ice-cold first quarter hurt the Wolfpack as the Jaguars took a 9-2 first-quarter margin and added to it with an 18-12 third-quarter difference for the 48-33 conference win.

Bledsoe again was a top scorer, hitting a trio of treys for a game-high 18 points. It wasn't enough to outgun TCP's three players in double figures.

Ryland Kilts scored 20 in DW's 59-44 loss to River View on Jan. 11, with Bledsoe chalking up 16 points.

River View rode a big second quarter, outscoring DW 16-8 to help their margin.
